Published!! Yeah!

Wow!! What a weekend!! I try to update my blog a least every other day....but as you can see that didn't quite happen!!
Here is what my past couple days have looked like...don't worry it won't bore you!! lol!
On Thursday I headed over to my friend Mark's house to record a documentary that he is putting together for school...It's all about the work behind wedding photography! The reason I am a photographer is because I don't like to be in front of the camera...but for this I had to do it for a couple hours!! It was so funny because at first I just couldn't even answer any of his questions cause I just kept laughing! But after awhile I got the hang of it:) Can't wait to see it!
On Friday morning we woke up to hearing tons of helicopters over our house!! We walked outside and found out that there had been two major accidents!!! Both less than a 1/2 mile from each other, one was fatal!!:( It was so strange to see cause we looked up one street and there are all these police cars and the same looking down the other helicopters in the air it looked like a war zone! Man!
Yesterday we shot an engagement session in the morning and then headed right over to a wedding in the afternoon!! It was long but sooo much fun!!! Slideshows coming hopefully tomorrow!!
And the other day we were at the bookstore and we picked up this super popular christian music magazine called CCM... We were looking through it and what do you know!! Two of my pictures were in it!! I'm so excited!! This is my first, bigger more poplular published work!! The pictures are the two circle ones above!:) Yeah!

Sarah Barlow said...

haha!! we got some HILARIOUS footage last night after the wedding!! Oh man!!
(something about not being able to dance at the getting it all out afterwards!!) LOL!!!

katie said...

ooh sarah i think i saw a slideshow with those 2 pics in it!!!!!

mark said...

um...this weekend?
we'll see, i don't think i can edit that fast.
saturday was so much fun! can't wait till the next shoot.

Sarah Barlow said...

Oh!! I'm sure you can *slips Mark a $20*
HAHA!!! jk..

Sarah, you're so great!!

I'm so excited about the ways God is blessing you and your family! How awesome to get published! If that ever happens for me, I might just spaz out!! haha!

I wish I could make it up to Chicago, girl! That would be a blast. I'm gonna have to make it to one of DJ's stops!

Shyla said...

OK so Sarah, here's the plan...I got it all figured out...
You pack now, then fly back with DJ...
You can sublet the OTHER room at Amy's house for the summer...then you could go back home at the end of summer... BEST OF BOTH WORLDS!
That would make my distress in deciding whether to move to SB ALOT easier! ;) ;)

OpenSourcePhoto said...

lol... or maybe we could swap! I realized that I'm gonna be in Chicago 3 times and Michigan twice this summer so I might as well move back to the midwest! In all honesty - it's a crime that my place will be empty this whole summer! Somebody should enjoy this place while I'm gone!

Sarah Barlow said...

Aww!! Thanks Crystal!!!
You HAVE to come up to Chicago!! Maybe we could work something out that we could shoot a wedding together!!!!!!! That would be sooo much fun! Turtle power all the way! hehe!

Sarah Barlow said...

Oh Shyla that is an incredible idea!!! I'm actually really considering it!! hehe!! Although I think I could only come for July..but STILL!!
DJ!!! It's not nice to tempt people like that!! LOL!!!
...although you could learn what it's like to be the oldest of 7!!!! HAHA!!!

Jasmine said...

Could you picture DJ with seven pseudo-siblings?! :) I think it'd be hilarious!!

Shyla said...

HECK YEAH!!! Lets girl-ify DJ's place!!! (not that it needs any help, its already a really sweet bachelor pad) But we could house-sit!
So sarah, should I get a place down here and then just come spend the month of July with you up in SB...does that sound like a better plan?

Sarah Barlow said...

HAHA!!! Totally!!!
I have NOTHING booked for July!!!..except for my birthday!! hehe!
Oh I want to do this!!!:)

I was looking for a picture of a cute hairstyle and I ironically landed on your blogger.
I don't really know why it sent me to your page, but I read through some of your post, and God has blessed you so much.
I think you have amazing talent.
I just wanted to encourage you!

I am going to keep you in mind when I need my wedding pictures!
